Yes, it's me the "Tahoe Boy" again. The GAWR FRT (hope I got that right) for my Tahoe is 3600 LBS, Is that good enough for a plow? I don't know much about the rating system.

Thanks,

Joel B.

your Tahoe is basicly a 1/2 ton truck so i would think and any one please corect me if i'm wrong that a 6' -7' plow would be good for your truck or you might go with a poly plow for less weight.

Our front axel ratings on the 1/2 ton Fords are also 3600 I think. We pushed it a little and went with western Pros at 7.5 ', but did put heavier coils on the front also. It is a super set up.

You should be fine, even with a 7.5' Fisher, which is a heavy plow. I think you'd want the 7.5' to clear that wheelbase. You could also call plow dealers in your area for Tahoe application. You could also look into a set of load boosters - there are several on the market at relatively small cost.

Joel; your Tahoe will do just fine with a 7'6 "standard duty" plow. Most "poly" moldboard plows will add extra weight, so take this into consideration when you make your choice. Both Timbren and Monroe make an excellent set of load boosters for the front of your truck.

Just like what I said in the previous thread, most plow manufacturers like Fisher recommend 7.5' regular duty plow for your Tahoe, according to their kit selection guide on the internet.
